About Mary Hanlon

Came to Aigues Mortes to buy in the 'Marina;. 'SanSoucis' came on the market while we were here. As its only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful walled town of Aigues Mortes decision made there and then and duly purchased it. We still look forward each trip, our children and now our grandchildren. Now we as a larger family enjoy wonderful times in our lovely French home. We know whoever stays in 'SanSoucis' will have memories forever.

Mary Hanlon purchased this villa in 2005

Why Mary Hanlon chose Camargue - Costieres

This is a luxury 3 bed detached property in the edge of the stunning walled town of Aigues Mortes, 3 minutes walk to wonderful restaurants, artisan shops and beautiful buildings, 12th century buildings. The house has a beautiul large enclosed terrace, shaded by 2 Palm trees which provides shade if required. The terrace is safe for young children and wonderful for alfresco dining. Seating for 8 persons dining. The pool is 40 metres from the front door.

What makes this villa unique

Aigues Mortes is in the Camarge where white horses and black bulls are visible in the fields. Access to 17 miles of beaches are within a 7 minute drive. Two major cities are within a 45 minute drive, Montpellier and Nimes, which are both worth a day trip. The train station in Aigues Mortes serves Grau Du Roi beach twice daily and to Montpellier daily.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location, 2 mins walk to beautiful town of Aigues Mortes, a very well equipped villa which suited all our needs. Beautiful patio area which we spent many evenings dining. Extremely safe for young children. We'll return.

Great holiday in September

  • 4 of 5

We spent the most wonderful time in Aigues Mortes: the house is located just outside the pretty cosy town, near the canal. There are lots of walking and cycling possibilities. The Mediterranean is 5 minutes away with plenty of fantastic beaches.

The house is quite spacious (it was certainly plenty of space for two of us), very comfortable and situated in the middle of a very quiet and neighbour –friendly residential area. All in all, we loved it, certainly would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a calm unadventurous holiday. We would be looking forward to being back there again.

Lovely family holidays

Just returned from the 3rd stay in this wonderful house.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Simply perfect.

The owners react kindly and fast to email. Deposit against damages was returned very fast.

The house has all the comfort you can ask for and is very well located within the property (close to swimming pool, own parking space right in front of the house).

The terras is very big and you always can find a place either in the sun or in the shaddow depending on what you prefer at that moment in time.

Note that the house is not in walking distance of any beach but this was not a problem for us because there are plenty of beaches nearby. You need a car but as we never had parking problems, so that's not an issue neither.

July/August 2011

We found the house to be extremely well located just a few minutes walk from the walls of the town of Aigues Mortes. The house was well equipped for cooking, washing clothes, and diswashing, all the necessities for family living. It was nice to find that there was a supply of beach towels available for use and that there were spares to allow for rotation. There was a great outdoor gas barbacue which we used regularly however this proved a little problematic to light as the ignition spark did not work. (perhaps a new battery could sort this.)

We used the outdoor eating area almost all of the time for meals and for sitting out at night with a glass of wine, one word of warning.... Bring Mosquito spray as they are incredibly prolific.

Another plus with the house was the air conditioning which I don't think you could do without inJuly/ August

The proximity to the pool was excellent and even though there are almost 80 houses on the estate the pool never seemed crowded.

The garage is also well equipped with 2 bicycles for use of the guests, and even a fishing rod if that takes your fancy.

Cycle paths while present in some places are not really suitable for kids who have just started cycling as they are narrow and the canal walk just down from the house is very rough underfoot for cycling or running on.

Restauraunts in town were a mixed Bag we would suggest La Salicorne as a good option if a little on the expensive side, Cafe de Commerce is also excellent with very good service.

On the other side of the coin La Montjoie in the square is very basic, but passable. La Citadelle should be avoided at all costs as we had a very bad experience here with huge waiting times between courses, cold food, extremely poor service. Also while the food is reasonably good at Les Capuchins in the square, if you want a relaxing meal aviod here as the object seems to be to cram in as many as possible and get them through and out as fast as possible.

Area is excellently served with things to do and places to go. Aigues Mortes is a perfectly intact walled 12th Century Medieval Town with ramparts you can walk, dozens of marvelous restaurants, cafes, art galleries and designer craft shops. The main gate into the town is a 2 min walk from the front door. The Roman towns of Nimes and Avignon are about 35 & 24 min away, Montpellier is a beautiful city and only 20 mins by car with easy parking. The re is 17 miles of beaches which are very different and serve all taste from naturists to sporting (wind-surfing, sail-boarding, etc. The closest only 5 mins by car (15 mins by bicycle) and safe for bathing. There is a great variety of water-sport activities available minutes from the house. GOLF: A Robert Trent Jones championship golf course is only 10 mins away in La Grand Motte. HORSE RIDING:The Camargue National Park surrounds us and you can horse ride and pony trek. There is a good size bicycle rental facility across the road from the residence. Fishing can be enjoyed and canal is just 2 mins from house where your fishing skills can be challenged. In Grau Du Roi (5 mins drive) a large Catamaran sail boat brings tourists out of the bay for nominal fee and is thoroughly enjoying. Barcelona, Spain is just a 3 hr drive away.
